The story was excellent and got me through many hours of working on my feet. The characters continue to develop and you're drawn into the individuals personalities.
My problem is this. How are we on book four and the narrator doesn't know how to pronounce the name of a leading character? It frustrated me the entire book.
Who would think that getting a main character's name wrong make a really good story into a mediocre one. I kept saying Kahlen out loud each time the narrator said Collin. It was frustrating. I could wait to finish the book so I wouldn't have to hear the mispronouciation.

I would recommend this book to anyone reading the trilogy but I would recommend reading it and not listen to this narration. I don't know if it is the fault of this narrator or previous narrators but they way he pronounces the names of some of the well known characters is not the same as the narrators for the previous 3 books. In some instances I didn't even realize he was narrating about characters that I already knew until several lines in.
While his voice is good, not speaking the names of the main characters properly drives me crazy. It's not hard learn how to pronounce the names of the people.
The perfect 2 - 4 chars development I have ever read! If you can't manage more than 4 chars at a time, this is the book series for you. This is my 5th go at the series. This time in a soft copy.
I don't give a damn about "proper" pronunciation, and I will not begrudge most changes in accents, styles and voices with different actors. BUT! this is a book in a series that is obviously going to be listened to in order! Therefore It is completely and utterly INEXCUSABLE to pronounce a main charecters name 'kaylen' FOR THREE BOOKS and then pronounce it 'Caalin' in the fourth! INEXCUSABLE!
